Of course, what you really needed was a power shower, to go with your power breakfast, power dressing, power napping, power walking, etc, etc. The black tiles with red grouting are an '80s style wow, too!
Oooh dear! 1983 Brian Mills catalogue. I favour the old rose, myself.
In the 1980s, microwave ovens swept in, as did jug kettles. Such a sensible design! My Brian Mills spring/summer 1983 catalogue has only one jug on offer...
... but my catalogues from 1985 and 1989 have whole armies of the things. The page above is from Argos, 1989. I particularly favour the red and white ones.
Dining in style in 1983... my cousin had something very like the table and benches on the right in 1984. Very lovely, of course.
How about these red, narrow slatted blinds for the kitchen - Index, 1989? I always lusted after some for my own kitchen, but never got round to buying any. Black was another option. I don't recommend white - boring and shows up the greasy marks carried through the air from your deep fat fryer - an essential for getting your Crispy Pancakes just right!
Red and black... Bella magazine, 1988. Adore this!
Bella 1988 again with another powerful '80s style statement. Pure beauty.
Index 1989 - with all that talk of power in the 1980s, it was only natural that boardroom blinds should start to come out of the boardroom and into the home. There's been a recent revival in this trend, so you may have them now. Lucky you! The colour of the blinds featured here was called "champagne"... mmm... more is more...
These 1980s curtains are beautifully colourful and would tell the neighbours so much about your glorious sense of style!
